Play On: Mississippi State -1.0 (5*)

Unranked Mississippi State comes up favorite in this contest versus #24 Alabama and in my mind rightfully so. Alabama is coming off an emotional 4-point home loss to bitter rival and 4th ranked Auburn. That was preceded by a horrible loss at Missouri in a game they closed as a 14.0-point favorite. The Crimson Tide have a home date with #12 LSU. This has all the earmarks of a flata spot for Alabama. The Crimson Tide has been erratic this season evidenced by their win over #2 Gonzaga but losses on a neutral floor to unranked teams in Davidson and Iona. Mississippi State is 9-1 on their home floor this season and will be amped up for this one. The Bulldogs have been red-hot offensively throughout its previous 5 games. Give me Mississippi State on the money line.
